Signing day a culmination of hard work

Jags, Cats & Lions sign letters of intent

MOORE — Kieron Hardrick was worried. National Signing Day was fast approaching and Westmoore’s leading rusher had yet to nail down a commitment to a college team and his future was starting to look cloudy.

But at the last moment, Southeastern University called and was offered a scholarship, which enabled him to go in front of his classmates Wednesday and sign a National Letter of Intent.

“This offer came in last week actually,” Hardrick said. “It was pretty late. I was getting nervous. I was starting to give up on myself. Through the grace of God, he came through. I was jumping up and down in excitement. I wasn’t expecting it at all. But I was excited.”

Hardrick was just one of the 32 Moore area athletes who have signed letters of intent this year. The majority of them did it last Wednesday on signing day. That included boys and girls in sports ranging from football to golf to soccer to tennis.

At Moore High, the Lions saw four of its softball players sign letters of intent. Brianna McArthur who will be attending Central Arkansas while Sabel Hankins heads to Lamar and Jenna Lynn and Caitlin Hall will play for Oklahoma Baptist.

Westmoore’s Elizabeth Disalvatore and Elle Stover will also attend the same school after signing LOIs to play soccer at Central Oklahoma.

“UCO has such a great soccer program,” Disalvatore said. “ I really like the coach. I just fell in love with the school and the program. I am really excited to go and start training with them. It’s going to be awesome to be going up there with Elle Stover. It’s good because we already have some chemistry. Hopefully it will bring us some success at the college level as well.”

Pierce Speed was one of eight Southmoore football players to sign. He will be heading to Northeastern Oklahoma community college.
